Columbian College offers summer scholarships through the CCAS Dean’s Summer Scholarship program.
Questions about the CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship should be sent to [email protected].
The CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship can be used for all CCAS summer courses. Funding is limited however and priority will be given to students who are taking courses for G-PAC or major requirements.
Students who receive summer financial aid from other GW sources (e.g., Summer Academy) cannot also receive the CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship.
If you have additional questions about the Summer Scholarship, please email [email protected].
Yes, applying for other scholarships or aid will not impact the decision to award the scholarships. If you are fortunate enough to get more than one offer, you should accept whichever offer is best for you.
You may register and apply for the Summer Scholarship for as many courses as you wish. However, funds are limited. It is unlikely that anyone will get enough money to pay for multiple courses.
It is hard to say at this point, and each case is different. The purpose of the scholarship is to help the greatest number of students possible; however, funds are limited. Last year, all students who received the Summer Scholarship got enough aid to pay for one credit. That being said, if you qualify, apply. It costs nothing and you are under no obligation.
Yes, each year is different. There is no reason someone couldn’t receive a scholarship more than once. Even if you did not receive a scholarship last year, or were offered one and turned it down, feel free to apply.
No. No tuition is due until the first day of the summer session in which the class is being taught. Students who register for a CCAS summer class in order to apply for the scholarship and later decide to drop the class will owe nothing, as long as the course is dropped prior to the first day of the session.
